Obama Lawyers Afraid To Go To Court On Email Scandal

  Hat/Tip to Judicial Watch. Lie, lie, obfuscate, delay, postpone, and if that doesn’t work, lie again. THAT is our government. The Obama administration’s fraud, misconduct and misrepresentation on the Hillary Clinton email scandal continues in federal court. Crafty, corrupt politicians realize that transparency and accountability go hand-in-hand.  So that is why Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (with the federal bureaucracies at their beck and call) have a personal and political interest in keeping their records away from the American people – even if it means violating the federal transparency law:  the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). So it will […]

ObamaCare In A Self-Created Death Spiral

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. Could it really be crumbling under its own weight? With premiums rising and the young and healthy dropping their coverage, signs are that the death spiral is well underway for the Affordable Care Act. Even if SCOTUS gives the government yet another gift and rules that the Feds can give out subsidies to citizens in states that didn’t set up their own exchanges, it won’t be enough to save this monstrosity from imploding. According to Sean Parnell at The Washington Times, Obamacare is repeating the same mistakes made by 8 states in the 1990s. Basically, you […]

Obama Whines About Names He Is Called, Wishes He Were In Europe

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. I wonder if his closest advisers make sure they always have a crying towel handy… In Sweden, President Obama complained about the way he’s sometimes treated back home in the United States, and suggested he’d be more welcomed in Europe: “You know, I have to say that if I were here in Europe, I’d probably be considered right in the middle, maybe center-left, maybe center-right, depending on the country. In the United States, sometimes the names I’m called are quite different.” . . .

How Does One Leftist Piss Off Another Leftist: Try To Take Away His Power

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. The hard left Democrats are on board with whatever Obama wants to do, until he wants to take away some of their power… Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) says when it comes to fast-tracking President Obama’s trade agreements, “it’s not constitutionally proper or right for us to give the authority to the executive, no matter who it is.” Ellison told a crowd at the AFL-CIO Young Worker Summit last Friday that he doesn’t agree with the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or “Fast Track” measure. “Now Fast Track says that ‘Congress, we want you to take your constitutionally designated authority […]

Obama to Iran: SURE, YOU CAN RUN CENTRIFUGES IN YOUR FORTIFIED UNDERGROUND BUNKER

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. Almost like it was written by The Onion… The latest Associated Press dispatch from nuclear negotiations in Lausanne, Switzerland, reads like satire: “The United States is considering letting Tehran run hundreds of centrifuges at a once-secret, fortified underground bunker in exchange for limits on centrifuge work and research and development at other sites, officials have told The Associated Press.” The AP explains that “the trade-off would allow Iran to run several hundred of the devices at its Fordo facility, although the Iranians would not be allowed to do work that could lead to an atomic bomb and […]

Dear Leader Snubs NATO Chief While Cozying Up To Iran

NATO? That’s so colonialist man. So it’s really no surprise when The Great And Powerful Obama chooses to snub his NATO counterpart. President Barack Obama reportedly will not meet with NATO’s new secretary general when he is in Washington this week, despite requests from the alliance chief’s staff for a get-together. Bloomberg View reported Tuesday that Jens Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama in advance of his scheduled visit, but did not receive any response from the White House. Instead, Bloomberg View reported that Stoltenberg had to settle for a last-minute meeting with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter. Send the […]

No, George Washington DIDN’T Say America Should Stay Out Of Foreign Affairs

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. A great piece on the Father of our Country. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With the talk of how bad Islam is for civilization and the question of just what to do about it, we are seeing those lightly informed about American history claiming that our founders–in particular George Washington–warned us to stay out of “foreign entanglements.” In fact, however, Washington neither said this, nor meant for such a policy to be enacted. Many on the left and the isolationist right try to use the father of our country to support their ideas against the GOP […]

Bowe Bergdahl: Desertion, Misbehavior Before The Enemy Charges – AMEEN!

“Ameen,” in Arabic means ‘Amen.’ See the story of Bowe Bergdahl’s father and his “Ameen” below. U.S. Army spokesman, Col. J. W. King, speaking from Ft. Bragg, has just announced desertion charges filed against Beau Bergdahl. Traded for five of the Taliban’s worst, or their best, depending on who is doing the deciding, Bergdahl received full pay after he ran away from his unit, and when we ‘saved’ him five years later, he learned he had been promoted to Sergeant, “in absentia,” or other reports say the promotion happened after he was retrieved from the enemy camp. So much was […]

Today’s ObamaCare Trainwreck Update: The IRS Taketh, Small Businesses Still Getting Hosed

  Can you believe it’s been 5 long years since ObamaCare went into effect? Can you believe there are still deluded people out there who like Obamacare? Not for long. The pain, it is coming. Half of the households that received subsidies to help pay health insurance premiums last year under the Affordable Care Act will probably have to repay some of that money to the federal government, according to a new analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Sorry suckers! Taxpayers generally receive subsidies in advance, with the amount based on their projected household income for the year the insurance […]

Obama Says “Islam Woven Into Fabric Of Our Nation”: Yes, They Gave Us The Marines And Our First Wars

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Keith Farrel at the Federalist Papers Project. “Here in America, Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” Barack Obama, 2015 Really, Mr. President? How so? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Obama Claims Islam Part Of Founding; Here’s The Truth In The Founders Own Words President Obama has continually asserted that Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. Obama claims that Muslims have made significant contributions to building of this nation. The claim is laughable to anyone who has studied US history. Historian David Barton spoke […]

Witnesses? We Don’t Need No Steenking Witnesses! – Obama State Department Calls Bergdahl’s Platoon Mates Liars

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. Yep, the same Marie Harf who thinks ISIS won’t attack us if we give them jobs is at it again. But this time she is denigrating the reputations of American soldiers. Why? Because she doesn’t agree with them. . . .  

US Special Ops Evacuating Yemen, Obama Speaking from Fantasy Island Called Yemen His Success

  The last remaining U.S. special forces in Yemen, estimated at 100, are evacuating from Al Anad Air Force base near the city of al-Houta. Fleeing al-Qaeda according to reports, although it is not clear whether our troops are leaving the country. Al Qaeda took al-Houta yesterday. Back in September 2014, Obama, speaking from Fantasy Island, cited Yemen as a successful model in the fight against terror. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years. ~ Barack Obama It […]

A Simple Question: What Has She Accomplished?

  Hat/Tip to Thomas Sowell at Right Wing News. A question, beautifully elegant in its simplicity – what has Hillary Clinton actually accomplished? It is amazing how a simple question can cause a complex lie to collapse like a house of cards. The simple question was asked by Bill O’Reilly of the Fox News Channel, and it was addressed to two Democrats. He asked what has Hillary Clinton ever accomplished. The two Democrats immediately sidestepped the question and started reciting their talking points in favor of Hillary. But O’Reilly kept coming back to the fact that nothing they were talking […]

Obama Administration Released Nearly 166,000 Convicted Criminal Aliens Across U.S. As Of April 26, 2014

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. No news here, he’s been doing this for quite some time now. US Senator Exposes ZIP Codes Where Criminal Illegals Were Released By Obama Administration Judicial Watch today released 76 pages of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents revealing that as of April 26, 2014, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had released 165,900 convicted criminal aliens throughout the United States, including many convicted of such violent crimes as homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. (Reports recently detailed that ICE released another 30,000 in the most recent fiscal year, which brings the grand total of known criminals […]

Senators Call For Defunding United Nations, If Obama Goes Against Israel In Security Council

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. File this under “About Damned Time!” The Obama administration made a lot of noise over the weekend about its displeasure at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments over the future of Palestinian statehood. Even though Netanyahu walked back his comments in an olive branch to the administration, the White House’s negative, threatening rhetoric towards the Jewish State has not diminished; in fact, it has increased. What concerns many lawmakers in the House and the Senate are the administration’s threats to possibly change the level of support that America gives Israel in the United Nations. Historically, the United […]

US Senator Exposes ZIP Codes Where Criminal Illegals Were Released By Obama Administration

Hat/Tip to The Conservative Tribune. Check The List For YOUR Zip Code Even though he’s waiting until after the mid-term elections to issue his amnesty-granting executive order, President Obama is hardly allowing his administration to sit idly by on this issue. Since the federal government announced its plan to place illegal immigrants in communities all across the United States weeks ago, Americans have been furious. It’s all part of President Obama’s plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. It’s frustrating enough to hear that these immigrants are being placed all over the U.S. and supported by our government, […]

After Obama Slobbers All Over The Mullahs, Ayatollah Calls On U.S. Youth To Join Jihad

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So despite all the brown-nosing, sucking up, and general, all around ass kissing President Obama has done to the Ayatollah of Iran, he still urges our own kids to join his jihad. Way to go, Obama. On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad. On Friday, Obama disgorged […]

Poll: Most Americans Want Hope And Change – They Hope The Next President Will Change Obama’s Failures

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Eight years is a long time when it comes to doing damage to this country, and it looks like that same time frame may be short when it comes to fixing all that damage. Some positive news! This does not bode well for Hillary or any Democratic candidate. Now all we need is a good candidate in opposition. Most Americans’ perfect presidential candidate is someone who’s willing to change most of President Barack Obama’s policies, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. More from CNN about the poll results: Three statements generated wide-reaching support. Fifty-nine percent of […]
